  • Be aware of the data you are collecting on individuals; do you need this data?
  • What are you using the data for, do you need to keep it? If you don’t then delete it now.
  • Where, and how are you storing this data, is this secure? How many people can access this information? Reduce the access to only the people that need to access it.
  • Are you passing the data on to any third parties, if you are, do you have consent? If you don’t, then stop this now.
  • Make policies and implement the changes across your business. Inform all your staff about the new changes. Make sure they are aware of the importance of keeping personnel details safe. Never give out someone’s personnel information without their consent.
